Coconut oil is an excellent makeup remover. It is all natural and provides extra benefits to your skin that a makeup remover or a makeup wipe may not do.
To use, simply take some coconut oil onto your hand and massage it onto your face, like you would with a cleanser. Instantly, your makeup should begin to come off, after which you can go ahead and wash your face with warm water and then pat dry your skin.
Compared to using a makeup remover that requires the use of a cotton pad or wipe, coconut oil can be used on its own without a cotton pad, which in return means your skin does not get tugged or pulled at. Instead, coconut oil is very gentle and has so many other benefits. Coconut oil will significantly moisturize your skin, leaving your skin smooth, supple and soft. Coconut oil will also give your skin an after glow and it will help with acne, wrinkles, lash and eyebrow growth!
I do however want to mention that, coconut oil does clog pores, so if you have oily skin or breakout easily, I wouldn’t necessarily recommend using coconut oil as an alternative to makeup remover.
Lastly, you want to be using virgin cold pressed coconut oil, which is all organic and not regular coconut oil which is refined.
